About the Hamilton-Norwood scale

The Hamilton-Norwood scale is a way of measuring male pattern baldness. It was introduced by Dr. James Hamilton in the 1950s and later revised and updated by Dr. O'Tar Norwood in the 1970s.



There are 2 main types of balding, anterior (front) and vertex (back), as this alternate view of the Norwood scale shows a bit more clearly.



Stages on the scale are often abbreviated to nw1, nw2, nw3a etc. Another slight variation on the scale is shown below.



Baldness in women takes a different pattern, and is measured on the Ludwig Scale.



I intend to give each of my postings a rating on the Norwood scale, but remember that this is only personal opinion and sometimes I may get it wrong. The Norwood scale is a less than perfect way of measuring baldness, but it is the best and most widely recognised way we have.

  1. Maria Grand first grabbed my ears with her relaxed, intricate bounce on the tenor saxophone. Coach Outlet Store Online But, when I heard her sing, and sing what I learned were her own poetic introspective lyrics, I dug deeper. Her singing voice has pillow tone and precise pitch, and lands each word with the same ease and diction she's achieved on the horn. Grand says that the words aren't quotes but are rather "words of wisdom she could have (and probably has) said." Grand says of the song's muse, "about intersectionality, about the meaning of life, about a path towards feeling whole and honest." The song's youthful honesty demonstrates a maturity and comfort in vulnerability that we need more of coach handbags outlet in today's jazz landscape. Alex Ariff, WBGO

    close overlay Buy Featured MusicThere are vocals and then there are vocals. Shannon Shaw has the latter. And on her debut single "Broke My Own," the frontwoman of Shannon and the coach factory outlet online login Clams rightly uses them to break out on her own. A vintage pop, neo soul sound hits you hard on this mighty track, but perhaps not as hard as the sweetly cynical and slightly deprecating lyrics of self fulfilling heartache. ("So just leave me behind / And go and get on / My worst enemy is my own flesh and bone.") The overall effect is something like that of a silky cocktail that's as smooth as it is strong. Trust us when we say you're going to want to take a sip. Lauren Menking, KXT

    Jeffrey Foucault coach outlet online is the king of the folk slow jam. The title cut is a leisurely affair, but still extremely effective in pulling the listener in with mesmerizing, meditative instrumentation. Foucault's called his band "an embarrassment of riches" and glancing at the credits, you can't disagree: Billy Conway (of Morphine fame), Bo Ramsey (Lucinda Williams), Eric Heywood (Pretenders) and vocalist Pieta Brown (whose worked with John Prine and Brandi Carlile). Once the lines start flowing, it gets really interesting because it's not entirely clear what this song is about. With lines like "We were lovers in the travelling time / Blood brothers, back when you were mine" coming from a straight man, they sow a lot of mystery and intrigue. One thing is certain: This is a song lamenting loss whether it's a friend or lover. It's alluring and relatable all at once. Cindy Howes, Folk Alley

  5. Palmeiro later clarified that he never used steroids, but that done little to sway public opinion. Fans likely would been forgiving had it not been for the finger pointing denial before Congress. But PEDs + lying about it = a recipe for the hardest feelings.
